Jean Paul Gaultier is a designer renowned for shaking up the rule book, reformulating classics and playing with contradictions. A true icon of the fashion world, he’s flirting for more then two decades with furniture manufacturing. In collaboration with French furniture-maker, Roche Bobois, Jean Paul Gaultier launched his “sexy and bedroom inspired” furniture collection, and the Ben Hur armchair belongs to this collection.
Ben Hur armchair was inspired by the Roman chariots and it has an aluminum structure and stylish velvet upholstering that is available in four colors: yellow, red, blue and green. Like almost every piece from Gaultier’s furniture collection, this chair has wheels because Gaultier has made his furniture on the idea of extra mobility, wanting people to be able to move each item from one room to another.
Hardly looking as a comfortable piece of furniture, the seats will still be a perfect addition for any office or living room area giving the space it’s placed in a special accent, and most certainly draw attention and start discussions.
